I hear that NWP has also been cleaned up from all the homeless and drugs that had been a problem for a while...is that right?

It has been cleaned up. They cleaned out all the underbrush and the vines so that for example, hole 2 no longer has the vine cave/hooker hideout. You can still see some condoms and needles lying around from time to time, but it is much better. Its still in the ghetto though...

Trimmed some fat...Glo Z Buzzz out (wasn't getting thrown with Fuse/2FR/Ion), and my DGR P-PD in for my light stiff PD since I've been tearing it up with it.

175 Medium Proto Red Ion--Putts, approaches, short/straight drives.
175 Medium blue Ion--Overstable drives
172 Soft yellow/green Ion--flips a little, FH putting, driving, and upshots
174 Soft blue Ion--Stable soft Ion

177 Goldline Fuse--anhyzers, turnovers, touch shots
177 2FR Buzzz--seasoned and versatile, longest and straightest Buzzz, almost a FWY driver
177 Opaque Green Z Buzzz--More stable for wind/true hyzers
175 XXX--overstable, wind, utility
173 XXX--slightly domey, has more glide, a little less HSS, and skips much less

174 P-PD--beat for turnovers/rollers/tailwinds
175 P-PD (DGR pinky)--super straight
175 S-PD--seasoned, all sorts of glidey hyzers/S shots/straight distance
175 C-PD--overstable for wind, open hyzers, S shots

174 Echo Star Destroyer--flippy for control D or wide open Max D
174 Echo Star Destroyer--fairly stable for power shots and gliding hyzers
175 Star Destroyer--domey and overstable for wind/hyzers

Wow, the Glo went from workhorse to fat, poor thing.

So about that 2FR Buzzz, what's the distance difference compared to a 'regular' Buzzz? Also, what exactly do you mean by straightest, less HSS or less LSS? Or just goes straighter for a longer portion of its flight.

If you throw an average Z Buzzz 300', that same throw would yield 320' with the 2FR. By straightest, I mean that it flips a little and then holds with a very late fade.

The 2FR I have in my bag now spent 2 years as my main mid before I put the Stalker/Glo Buzzz in. The Stalker and 2FR overlapped quite a bit, so the shorter Glo Z was a better fit. Now that I've scrapped the Stalker, the longer 2FR is better. This is reinforced by carrying the Ion, which is better at shorter stuff.

I finally switched over totally the medium Ions...I like the soft and it still does a couple things better, but I prefer a single consistency of feel for all my putters. Everything

175 Medium Proto Red Ion--Putts, approaches, short/straight/turnover drives.
175 Medium blue Ion--Overstable drives

177 Goldline Fuse--anhyzers, turnovers, touch shots
177 2FR Buzzz--seasoned and versatile, longest and straightest Buzzz
177 Opaque Green Z Buzzz--More stable for wind/true hyzers
175 XXX--overstable, wind, utility
173 XXX--slightly domey, has more glide, a little less HSS, and skips much less

174 P-PD--beat for turnovers/rollers/tailwinds
172 P-PD--super straight
175 S-PD--seasoned, all sorts of glidey hyzers/S shots/straight distance
175 C-PD--overstable for wind, open hyzers, S shots

174 Echo Star Destroyer--flippy for control D or wide open Max D

I felt guilty about adding the Fuse at first because 5 molds has a nicer ring than 6, but man am I glad I did. At 300' its a much more versatile disc as it gets some flip and then holds, where my Buzzz gets far less turn at that range and barely flips up from hyzer. Also, where my Buzzz seems to lock onto a flat and straight line, my Fuse flies straight while still leaning to the left or right much better. I'm glad I approach with putters though because I've popped the Fuse on a low line and had it sail past the basket on me on just about every approach I've used it on. It has some serious glide that surprises me less and less no that I'm used to it, but it was a bit of a learning curve. Great disc.

I've taken out some Destroyers as my S-PDs are truly my go-to distance drivers. I've kept the most overstable of my Destroyers to do the couple of things that my PDs won't.

175 Medium Proto Red Ion--Putts, approaches, short/straight/turnover drives.
175 Medium opaque white Ion--straight drives and perhaps my main putter
175 Medium blue Ion--Overstable drives
(I always carry a bunch of extra Ions to practice approach shots with as well)

177 Goldline Fuse--anhyzers, turnovers, touch shots
177 2FR Buzzz--seasoned and versatile, longest and straightest Buzzz
177 Opaque Green Z Buzzz--More stable for wind/true hyzers
175 XXX--overstable, wind, utility
173 XXX--slightly domey, has more glide, a little less HSS, and skips much less

174 P-PD--beat for turnovers/rollers/tailwinds
175 P-PD--super straight
175 S-PD--seasoned, all sorts of glidey hyzers/S shots/straight distance
172 S-PD--new and more stable for full power and hyzer shots
175 C-PD--overstable for wind, open hyzers, S shots

173 Avery Jenkins Star Destroyer--domey and overstable for wind/hyzers

For my first actual mold change of the season (I went a long time) I took out my Destroyer and I put the Boss back in. PDs are my main D driver and the Boss steps up better from there for the situations I really need it for (headwind, low ceilings, long and straight with hard finish, FH distance). Right now I've got a red champ star in my bag, but I'm also messing with an E*. Eventually I'd like to find a particularly overstable one and one that is straighter (either beat or out of the box).

175 Medium Proto Red Ion--Putts, approaches, short/straight/turnover drives.
175 Medium opaque white Ion--straight drives and perhaps my main putter
175 Medium blue Ion--Overstable drives
(I always carry a bunch of extra Ions to practice approach shots with as well)

177 Goldline Fuse--anhyzers, turnovers, touch shots
177 2FR Buzzz--seasoned and versatile, longest and straightest Buzzz
177 Opaque Green Z Buzzz--More stable for wind/true hyzers
175 XXX--overstable, wind, utility
173 XXX--slightly domey, has more glide, a little less HSS, and skips much less

174 P-PD--beat for turnovers/rollers/tailwinds
175 P-PD--super straight
175 S-PD--seasoned, all sorts of glidey hyzers/S shots/straight distance
172 S-PD--new and more stable for full power and hyzer shots
175 C-PD--overstable for wind, open hyzers, S shots

174 Star Boss--FH D, wind, low ceilings, and open hyzers.
